> Florida Life ( Lifestyle ) By Lori Capullo [Lcapullo17@gmail.com] Gear & Gadgets GoPro Hero 3+ From $300 Mount the GoPro Hero 3+ camera on a head strap or chest harness as you ski, surf, hang glide or perform other athletic feats, with a new flexible clamp called “Jaws” (which ranges from $20 to $50). There’s now a GoPro App for your phone and tablet that acts as a remote control for the camera and lets you preview, email, text, Instagram and post the videos on Facebook. Fitbit Force Wireless Activity & Sleep Wristband $130 The inconspicuous wristband is a pedometer-plus, tracking steps, distance, stairs climbed, calories burned and activity minutes, plus it monitors your sleep and wakes you with a silent alarm. It’s water-proof and comes with a charging cable and wireless sync dongle. Biscotti XS $300 The cookie-sized device — hence the name — sits atop your HDTV to turn it into a video (or voice) calling system and saves calls and messages through cloud services. It comes with free unlimited calling that integrates with Google Talk. Galaxy Gear Smart Watch $300 As long as you have a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 smartphone to connect to it via Bluetooth, you’ll be able to bring most of your phone’s apps (in-cluding text messaging) to your wrist, eliminating the need to constantly fool with your phone (and allowing you to be more inconspicuous about your distractions). 14 MARCH 2014 FLORIDATREND.COM
